You are looking at a Paul Reed Smith SC245 Artist Package Electric Guitar Dark Cherry Sunburst, serial number 199362. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 2.5 oz.)

The PRS Artist Package program is an exclusive platform that offers expanded options and enhancements on select models. These upgrades create the most distinctive instruments available from the PRS Core production line.

The carved top of the SC245 is crafted from beautifully figured, artist grade maple and is perfectly paired up wiith a select mahogany back. The body is cloaked in an elegant Dark Cherry Burst V12 finish.  The V12 finish was developed over 12 years (that’s the 12 in V12), and it is intended as a midpoint between nitrocellulose and acrylic with a classic feel all its own. V12 is extremely thin to allow the guitar to resonate, but it is still incredibly durable with no risk of reacting to leather or guitar stands in a negative way. For those players who prefer a traditional single-cutaway, you will fall in love with the smooth Singlecut of this SC245. The mahogany neck features PRS' pattern profile, an updated version of PRS' Wide Fat neck style based on Paul's pre-factory design, which could be found on the guitars built for artists such as Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton and Howard Leese back in the late '70s to the mid '80s. The neck also features a 22-fret Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with gorgeous Artist bird inlays and a Brazilian rosewood headstock veneer with an Artist headstock signature. This SC245 comes equipped with a pair of 57/08 humbucking pickups that are designed to deliver powerful tone with great clarity and gives off a vintage vibe. The SC245 features hybrid hardware including a PRS 2-piece anchored bridge and Phase III locking tuners to enhance this instruments natural tone and to provide you with superb tuning stability. This SC245 has the entire package, from its striking beauty, to its incredible tone and smooth playability, the Artist Package SC245 is sure to stand out in the crowd and will rise to any occassion. This SC245 comes fully protected in a durable, black Artist hardshell case.
